that the new egyptian government has a set of policies about which we are not yet certain. i think there was a lot of discomfort correctly in this country when these attacks took place last week, an american ambassador was killed, a friend of the arab people, and the egyptian president did not say and do the kinds of things that the libyan government said and did. there was a caution, there was a hesitation of alienating the extremist islamic groups in egypt, something the libyan people, libyan government didn't do and then the libyan government encouraged and participated in tens of thousands of libyans coming out on the streets and expressing their support for the united states and regretted the killing of an ambassador. those things haven't happened in egypt. so president morsi is walking a fine line, but he's contributing by refusing while in egypt to say and do the things that he will say to western businessmen and will say while he's here in the united states. >> the president is now at the united nations. we'll take a quick break and when we come back, the president's speech

denunciatory of the egyptian government, in my judgment. hillary put out a magnificent statement that follows the white house, repudiating the american embassy statement and making a statement calling the egyptian government to task. in libya, we were more conciliatory because the libyan president denounced the attack. but that is not adequate. if they can't control the cops and military, it is not a government. we should be denunciatory. i doubt there is a single country in the world left in civilization that would not have called back its ambassador. and certainly cut off, or put in terms that relates to the 2 billion that egypt receives from the united states, i am sure libya receives money. it was even greater because the american ambassador -- i am supportive of the arab spring. the times and elsewhere, i said to myself, they are not great people. but they are people that surely will turn out nice to us. it doesn't make any sense. >> the events of the last week, the embassy attacks, it will result in a further ongoing shift of jewish americans changing -- >> i think there is a little mor

in state government debts as well. now my final number: $50,000 is the median household income. so, we owe $12,000 more than we make. that means as a nation what we owe now exceeds what we have. that also means even if you confiscate all that we make every penny of its you would not come close to covering what we spend, any of it. that is the issue the guys should be hammering tomorrow night, how vulnerable we are. the guy would lays it out would not just be reframing the debate but setting off a firestorm. but one that need not concern him or us. as the fine of the mind in both political parties have told me, and, yes, there are still quite a few, to quote a certain vice presidential candidate, we can do this. listen to two guys on my fox business network show, which if you don't get you should demand, last night, retired democratic senator sam nunn and former republican senator bob bennett appears jointly on fox business network. each offering relatively modest proposals to fix this mess. listen closely. >> we particularly have to discuss, frankly, with the american people, that the enti

east, have they given you any pause about your support for the governments that have come to power following the arab spring? >> well, i said even at the time that this is going to be a rocky path. i was pretty certain, and continue to be pretty certain, that there are going to be bumps in the road. >> sean: now u.s. ambassador, two navy seals, and another american are assassinated, and he calls it's a bump in the road? that insensitive comment was made the day after the terrorist attack on september 12th. we'll have much more on that outrageous interview with dick morris, but first we're joined in studio by the author of a brand-new book out today, "mugged" available in bookstores everywhere. ann coulter is with you. they lied. this is the bottom line here. they said the youtube video, two ways of attack. this is not spontaneous. i have a missile-fired grenade i'm about to shoot into a u.s. consulate and kill a u.s. ambassador. >> you don't think it's a youtube video? >> sean: the one released in july? >> i consider the whole administration a bump in the road. his presidency a bum
to the united states, its governments, and its people, this -- catastrophe will only increase our solidarity to entrench the hopes and objectives in which ambassador chris stevens believed, we shall defeat the backward terrorists who do not represent libya, who do not represent islam. islam is a religion of tolerance, peace, and love, just as president obama said, from this platform two days ago. our future is a future that will be charted by people like chris stevens, not people like his killers. in this context, i would like to express my condolences to the libyan people and to others for the death of the person who has joined the long list of martyrs from five days ago. mr. president, i would like to express our deep appreciation for the understanding showed by the u.s. administration following that incident. let me stress that my country is determined to pursue the perpetrators and to bring them to justice. we shall make our utmost to strengthen the necessary protection granted to diplomatic and consular missions, and to insure the safety of their employees and facilities. this painful e
